King of the Hill as a Horror Manga

Junji Ito is a Japanese horror manga artist who specializes in body horror. In his comics, innocent human beings are warped into semi-human monsters. The American cartoon King of the Hill is not strictly body horror, but more an existential thriller about the decay of the modern human soul. Aside from his narrow urethra, Hank Hill experiences little of the physical terror that Ito’s characters do.

Until now.

Woodrow White, who is an artist for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, drew Hank exploring an Arlen, Texas that has been subjected to Ito’s morbid horrors.
